MARCH 8: VALLEJO UPDATE
Joe is getting up to 4 hours of therapy in Vallejo as they adjust his baclofen pump. The pump has taken away the spasms but also some of his strength and movement in his legs. This was very distressing to him but once he realized they could adjust the dosage and give him less of the drug, he was encouraged. It is an art to find the balance between less spasms and sufficient strength. He is scheduled to be discharged March 16 and is anxious to get home and move on with his workouts.
